A Hero in Heaven - Trailer


A Hero in Heaven" is a 45 minute documentary that chronicles the life of Michael Levin (z"l), the only American-Israeli soldier killed during the Israeli/Hezbollah war in 2006.

Born and raised in the United States near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Michael Levin (z"l) grew up in a traditional, loving Jewish home. At the young age of sixteen, Michael had decided that he wanted to move to Israel and join a front-line combat unit in the Israeli Defense Forces.

That dream was fulfilled when he made Aliyah in 2003 and joined the elite paratrooper unit #890. On August 1, 2006, Michael was killed in combat at Aita-Al-Shaab in Lebanon. On August 3, 2006, he was buried in the National Military Cemetery on Mt. Herzl in Jerusalem, Israel. Michael was a great hero and left behind a legacy of Jewish pride and commitment.

'A Hero in Heaven' tells the story of Michael's devotion to his family, his people and the land of Israel. This is presented through the music of Naomi Shemer, the songs of Rachel, the poems of Shaul Tchernokovsky, magnificent film footage of Israel, a message from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the words of Michael's family, friends and those who loved him dearly.

'A Hero in Heaven' was written, produced and directed by Sally Mitlas of Mitlas Productions, LLC.

It has gained national and worldwide acclaim since its release in March 2007.
